Recite, and your Lord is the most Generous -

Who taught by the pen -

Taught man that which he knew not.


(The Quran,  96:3-5)


About Al-QalamTM Magazine

The Aim

The aim of Al-Qalam is to re-contextualize spirituality in our modern times: from the every day life to the world of arts, academia, and beyond. Each published issue contains an article written by Imam Fode Drame and other written works by his students and skillful writers carefully chosen by the Al-Qalam editing team. In this way, Al-Qalam is not only a source for sound knowledge and ingenuity, but a celebration of art, freedom of expression, and inspiration.
